We warmly welcome all who have come to worship the Lord on this Fourth Sunday of Lent. As designated by the Church the whole period of Lent including Holy Week is intended to be one of self-discipline, a time of reflection, spiritual discipline and self-examination all in prepartion for Easter. It is a season of inner change and re-dedication of God. Let us experience our Lenten journey just as Jesus himself went to the wilderness and prepared himself for forty days by fasting and praying.
